William Hung is now a married man!

People reports that the 31-year-old ‘American Idol’ Season 3 contestant traded vows with Jian Teng, 31, on June 18 in Alhambra, Calif.

“She’s a fantastic wife and I’m glad to have somebody to support me,” Hung told the site.

In 2004, Hung developed a cult following after his notorious ‘American Idol’ audition in which he attempted to perform Ricky Martin’s ‘She Bangs’ in front of Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson. Cowell berated Hung, saying, “You can’t sing, you can’t dance, so what do you want me to say?”

After Hung’s audition aired, he went on to appear on various media shows including the ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ and ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show.’ He also guest starred on an episode of ‘Arrested Development.’ Hung would later release two studio albums, ‘Inspiration’ and ‘Miracle: Happy Summer From William Hung,’ as well as a holiday album titled ‘Hung for the Holidays.’

Currently, Hung is working as an administrative assistant for the L.A. County Department of Public Health. His new wife, Teng, is a licensed vocational nurse.

Congratulations to the new couple!
